UUCB Concerts for a Cause: JAMES KEELAGHAN

Saturday, April 10, 2021, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Canadian folk singer James Keelaghan will perform at the Brunswick Unitarian Universalist Church on Saturday, April 10th at 7:30 pm as part of the Concerts for a Cause series to raise money for local charities. James Keelaghan is an internationally recognized singer songwriter, known for his finely crafted stories and his commanding performances. At home in Canada, hes a Juno award winner and Canadian Folk Music Award winner who has grown from a popular coffeehouse act in Calgary to a festival and concert hall favorite. He has taken mainstage at some of the most prestigious festivals in the US, England, Australia, Denmark and Hong Kong. Aside from making music, Keelaghan broadcasts on CBC and hosts two shows on CKUA in Alberta. Keelaghan studied history at the University of Calgary, and his passion for stories, old and new, informs some of his best-known songs. These arent stuffy history lessons, but an inspired discovery of people and places in another time. Many of the lyrics in his songs display a concern about social problems and justice in society. Examples of such themes include "Kiri's Piano," about the internment of Japanese Canadians and House of Cards about the financial crisis of 2007. And while many of Keelaghans most celebrated songs draw from historical accounts, his accounts of personal journeys are remarkable too tender and unflinching. Keelaghan's lilting baritone voice, driving rhythm guitar, and a sense of scene and narrative makes for a concert to remember. It was Dave Marsh, the award-winning American music critic who stated that James Keelaghan is Canadas finest songwriter, and those few but powerful words of praise say it all about an artist who continues to set the bar at a lofty height. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door, Students/Children: $10. Also available at the church office and Gulf of Maine Books.

Cost: 10 - 15 USD
